Can new Manc tv show Domino Day capture Manchester’s heart like other iconic series set in the city?

BAFTA-Nominated Lauren Sequeira's Manchester set supernatural series is set to cast a spell on viewers

The streets of Manchester are set to become the backdrop for an intriguing and spellbinding modern witch drama, “Domino Day,” coming to BBC Three and BBC iPlayer in early 2024.

Manchester has already produced so many good TV Series, like Life on Mars, Brassic, Cold Feet, Shameless, and Queer as Folk to name but a few.

Could this new BBC Drama set to join these Mancunian legends on screen?

It certainly looks, well, a bit different but we’ll be giving it a go when it comes out next year.

Created and written by the talented BAFTA-nominated Lauren Sequeira, this six-episode series promises to be a big Manchester hit.

Unveiling a Unique Witch Story

In a refreshing twist on witchcraft, “Domino Day” introduces us to Domino, portrayed by the sensational Siena Kelly, who is not your average witch.

Far from the traditional image of broomsticks and pointy hats, this drama explores a modern-day world of witches who are as cool as they are provocative.

Seeking More Than Love on Dating Apps

Domino is not your typical singleton swiping through dating apps in search of love.

Instead, she’s on the hunt – a hunt for something far darker and more electrifying.

As a young witch with extraordinary powers, Domino’s journey takes her to Manchester, where she seeks to understand her true self and find a community that can help her.

But her quest is anything but straightforward.

A Coven on Her Trail


Unbeknownst to Domino, a coven of witches is hot on her trail, tracking her every move.

They are convinced that her powers have the potential to destroy everything and everyone in their path. The tension between Domino and the coven promises a gripping narrative of suspense, intrigue, and magic.

Old Threats Resurface

Adding to the suspense, a dangerous figure from Domino’s past reemerges, raising questions about whether this confrontation will lead to a fresh start or a final showdown.

An Outstanding Ensemble Cast

Siena Kelly takes the lead as Domino, alongside a talented cast, including Babirye Bukilwa as Sammie, Poppy Lee Friar as Geri, Alisha Bailey as Kat, Molly Harris as Jules, Sam Howard Sneyd as Silas, and Percelle Ascott as Leon.

The series also features Lucy Cohu, Christopher Jeffers, and Jonah Rzeskiewicz.

Lauren Sequeira’s Vision

The show’s creator, Lauren Sequeira, has shared her excitement for the world to meet this remarkable cast.

“Don’t expect broomsticks, pointy hats, and wands – these are witches like you’ve never seen before; cool, provocative, and full of grit.

They are all simply spellbinding onscreen, and Siena is the perfect Domino Day,” she said.

A Team of Creatives Behind the Scenes

“Domino Day” is not only packed with exceptional talent in front of the camera but also boasts an equally talented team behind the scenes.

With episodes written by Charlene James and Haleema Mirza, and direction by Eva Sigurdardottir and Nadira Amrani, this series is set to leave an indelible mark.

Mark Your Calendar for 2024

The supernatural six-parter “Domino Day” is a promising addition to the world of modern witch dramas, and fans can’t wait to witness its mesmerising storytelling.

Set your reminders for early 2024, as this captivating series premieres on BBC Three and BBC iPlayer.

Fremantle is responsible for handling global distribution for the series, ensuring that “Domino Day” has the potential to bewitch audiences worldwide.
